OROS : Critical Insights from a Vocational Education and Training-Impact Study in Colombia, June 22

Date: June 22, 2023

Time: 15:00 – 17:00 CEST


Language: English


In 2018, Vivamos Mejor commissioned researchers of the University of Lausanne and the Universidad de los Andes to carry out a Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) to understand the impact of its approach combining vocational education and training (VET) with youth empowerment*. The study aimed to find out whether this combined intervention helps disadvantaged young adults in their personal development in terms of mental health resilience and better labour market integration. The results indicate that the youth empowerment program offered important complements compared to stand alone VET.

In this OROS we will reflect on

  • the strengths and limitations of impact evaluations, especially RCTs
  • minimum requirements for implementation
  • RCT contribution to evidence-based learning
  • … and exchange of experiences from the Global South

Join us online on 22 June from 3-5 pm  for this webinar, which will be held in English!

* Youth empowerment of Vivamos Mejorconsists of psychosocial support, soft skills and peace-building skills development, as well as labour market placement.
